History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (HAPSAT) Society
The HAPSAT Society consists of all full- and part-time graduate students at the IHPST, and operates as their representative, organizational and social body. Meetings are held approximately monthly, and all HAPSAT members are welcome to attend.
- HAPSAT members make various important contributions to graduate student life. Some of these are:
- The representation of and advocacy for graduate student interests at the IHPST
- Representation of the IHPST graduate community at the University of Toronto Graduate Students Union and CUPE 3902 Unit 1
- The organization of the yearly graduate student conference
- A lunchtime talk series focused on ongoing work, the ‘Colloquialisms’
- The mentorship of incoming students
- Collaborations with other graduate student societies
- Organization of graduate student social events
Each September, an executive is elected to perform these and other important functions.
